Prestige Hocus Pocus, Spellbound Total Intensity Eyeshadow Swatches & Review

Prestige Total Intensity Eyeshadow: Hocus Pocus, Spellbound

Prestige Total Intensity Eyeshadow: Hocus Pocus, Spellbound

As regular readers of Project Swatch know, I am a huge, huge fan of Prestige’s Total Intensity Eyeliners (eight shades swatched here) – they’re my go-to eyeliners.  So, several months ago, I was excited to see a display at Ulta with more Total Intensity products: liquid eyeliners and eyeshadows. I purchased two eyeshadows, but hadn’t managed to review them yet.

Yesterday, at Rite Aid, I found this display:

It has the two newest shades of Total Intensity Eyeliner (Outrageous Emerald and Totally Turquoise), plus the black and brown shades. It also has five shades of liquid eyeliner (on the left), six eyeshadows (plus an eyeshadow tester), and a mascara.  Since the display is probably going to show up all over, I thought it was high time I reviewed my eyeshadows!

I have a quick in-store swatch of the eyeshadow tester, which is the shade Addiction. It’s a purple with a slight gray color shift (all the Total Intensity eyeshadows are duochrome to some extent).

For reference, here’s the Ulta display:

And, on to the better photos and swatches! Spellbound is a peachy pink with a gold duochrome, and Hocus Pocus is a rich brown with a strong green duochrome.  Neither color is unique – but both are done exceptionally well, especially for a drugstore brand.

Both eyeshadows are buttery smooth and VERY pigmented – as always, my swatches are done without primer.   They are really excellent quality, and I’m interested in buying more from the Prestige Total Intensity range!

If you’d like to buy these eyeshadows online, they’re available on Prestige’s website (which appears to have free shipping) and Ulta online (which has BOGO half off this week).
